Mane Eight: Battle ponies by Ziom05 Mane Eight: Battle ponies by Ziom05
Welcome to herd, haters.

:iconziom05: Q: What the hell is this and why is Octavia a pegasus?

:iconcobaltwave:A: This is a picture of a bunch of the characters me and my friends all play in a game together, and one of the players did indeed choose to play Octavia. Story shenanigans happened (as story shenanigans tend to do in things like RPGs), and long story short she got wings. So, while not exactly an OC like the rest of them, it is the person's main character, and I really wanted to include them in the picture as well since they're one of my best friends =)"
_____________

Commission for :iconcobaltwave: Her and her friends OC.

Alright, if this picture screamed EPIC at me any louder, I would no longer possess eardrums.
I can barely tell who is who, but that barely makes any difference. I'm not really sure what that monster is either, but it's not like monsters have a discerned style anyways. Giant snake-like, two headed scalely looking mofo is gettign beat up, that's all i need to know....
The general style of the art is nice, albiet kinda confusing, Ethan is not very perceptive anyways. Ethan DOES percieve, however, that this definitely took some time. that this has a lot of care put into every detail, and how everything seems to almost flow into one mosiac
Octavia has wings.
That is all
What do you think?

Finally I found it! A long time ago when I wasn't a DeviantArt member I found this picture and was hooked. So long I searched to find this again and now it happened.. Thanks for this EPIC art.

Bards too strong.
Interesting monster.  Is the whole neck in front of the Yellow/Red Unicorn also an oversized chomping maw?
Also a fan of the adaptation of ponies and weaponry.

I love how Octavia is playing her cello during the struggle. I do suppose for something this epic, it needs to have appropriate battle music. And she looks pretty cool with wings, too!

So... the child of Big Macintosh and some Unicorn?

I like the flaming hoof-boots on the Zebra.

A little bit of background info on the characters would go a long way to make this even better.

I'm going to guess you guys were playing Legends. It's very easy to gain flying in that game, also they have stats for ponies.

This is ABSOLUTELY EPIC. I love this image. What's more is that the details on each ponies' equipment is absolutely stunning. Each equipment makes sense (as in able to be used by the ponies), they have epic design (e.g. the axe. love that axe), and the monster looks absolutely amazing. A monster with multiple jaws trying to consume the party. What I especially love about this painting is the feeling that you get from mmorpg's or class/party based rpgs. You see the supporters (octavia), the tank (the one with the axe), melee dps (the bladed wing), the rangeds dps (crossbow), the bruisers (the ones with spears and the fighter class like earthpony. I also dont know their exact names, but the ones that deal decent dmg, but allows the dps to be able to focus on the main boss), and the high burst dmg mage (the unicorn with the lion emblem). It makes me want to play an rpg again. Once again I love the detail you put into this.

In most cases, bards are able to deal decent damage with tremendous mutli-target buffs and in some cases, cc and debuffs, making them fairly powerful. But they are often replaced by priests and more stable support classes since they are better :p
